Welcome to Emory Libraries, your center for excellence.

Ranked among the top 20 Association of Research Libraries (ARL) in North America, Emory University Libraries serve as an interdisciplinary, intellectual commons for our campuses in Atlanta and Oxford, Georgia.

Our innovative resources, services, spaces, and collections were developed and designed to advance the success of Emory students, staff, and faculty and to benefit the surrounding community and beyond.

Our collections include more than 4.4 million volumes, 336,390 electronic journals, over 1 million electronic books, and internationally renowned special collections.

The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Books Library is home to more than 250,000 rare books and over 17,000 linear feet of manuscript material. Rose Library’s collections span more than 800 years of history, with particular depth in modern literature, African-American history and culture, and the history of Georgia and the South.

Emory Libraries services are programmed and offered by talented library and information technology professionals who are excited to partner with and assist you in scholarly inquiry, research, production, and teaching.

This expertise—along with our print and electronic resources, distinctive special and archival collections, exhibitions, programs, centers, tools, labs, and spaces—combine to create an innovative and inviting environment to engage and enable your imagination.
